When you are using a high number of agents running the BO UI increase the number of request to the URL JOB_URL/runs/2/nodes/?limit=10000, this could become insane and makes that the UI blinks every time making it unusable even when the jobs are done.
Steps to replicate
- You need a system that can provision at least 100 agents to see the behavior
- Execute the following pipeline three times to try to provision more than 100 agents
- Open the BO UI on one of the builds
- Open the Chrome inspector on the network tab, after a minute or so you will start seen tons of REST request like 'JOB_URL/runs/2/nodes/?limit=10000' and 'JENKINS_URL/blue/rest/organizations/jenkins/computers/' meanwhile every few seconds the UI will blink
